New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm working on this project that is coming up very nicely and it uses Courier New (sorry if I offended anyone) ;)
I wanted to tweak the apostrophe and comma because they seemed too thick so I changed them a little in Fontlab. I started from a .ttf file and saved as Type 1 (Set as bitstream). My modifications worked fine but when I print, some letters seem to have thickened a little (u, r, and n especially.)
There is no such change on screen, only when I print it (using an inkjet printer). What could cause this? Is there another way to save that will keep it from doing this? Is it a matter of bitmaps or something?
I'm not really used to FontLab yet and font editing software overall so detailed explanations would be very nice! =)
